  • Sunrise Retractable Awning

    The design…innovative. The look…elegant. Sunrise retractable awnings blend advanced design with uncompromised quality. This functional design is backed by steel pins, triple-sheathed cables and spring-loaded arms, making it one of the sturdiest retractable awning models sold.

    When retracted, the Sunrise model remains stylish with an attractive hood. It provides protection when retracted and ensures that fabric remains clean, durable and beautiful. The Sunrise includes a drip rail that prevents soiling of the valance and keeps the fabric beautiful for even longer. Host a gathering, spend time with your family, read a book or simply relax under the comfort of a Sunrise Retractable Awning.

  • Toga Retractable Awning

    Want maximum protection for the fabric of your retractable awning? Choose a Toga model. The Toga model awning can be fully retracted with provided protection from the powder-coated aluminum clamshell, while leaving only the valence exposed. The valance can then be removed and stored during off seasons to prolong the life of the fabric. When is comes to ultimate retractable awning fabric protection, the Toga can’t be beat. We recommend the Toga retractable awnings for roof-mounted and wall-mounted solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

A lateral arm or retractable awning uses spring-loaded arms to provide tension to the fabric as it rolls from the roll tube. The retractable awning provides versatility in that it can be extended all the way, or only as far as needed. When it’s not needed it just rolls up, out of the way and stores itself. This adds years of service by protecting the fabric from the harmful effects of weather and the sun.

There are several ways for an awning to be attached to a structure, but all are dependent upon the location of the proposed installation site and its corresponding construction. Each unit is custom built as is the installation.

Professional installers will determine the correct installation for your particular needs. Wall mounts, soffit mounts, and roof mounts are examples of the different mounting brackets used, and location determines which mount is best suited for your individual needs.

All of our retractable awnings are built with the finest materials. The units are primarily made of aluminum with a baked-on, powder coated finish. The roll tube and mounting bar are made of steel for added strength. The mounting bar is also powder-coated. Each awning is custom ordered and manufactured to exact factory standards.

Our highly-skilled workers will ensure that every unit that leaves our factory performs to our demanding specifications, arriving at the job site assembled, tested, and ready for a flawless installation. We are the factory, and problems that may arise can be handled through your local dealer and then us. We manufacture high-quality awnings and we stand behind every unit that leaves our factory.

With proper maintenance and care, and some basic common sense, the awning should provide you with years and years of trouble-free, dependable service. Each unit comes from the factory with a 10-year common sense warranty. We take great pride in our product and our workmanship.

Perfecta retractable awnings are designed to be self-supporting. The steel mounting bar and steel roller tube provide horizontal strength to the awning. The double cables on the smaller units and the triple cables on the larger units apply an outward force that keeps the fabric tight.

Acrylic fabric provides the homeowner with years of protection against excessive fading, mildew, and rot. The fabric company warrantees its product for a period of ten years against manufacturer’s defect. Life expectancy should be eight to twelve years on a retractable cover when cleaning and care instructions are followed. Awnings can be recovered for approximately one-third the cost of the awning.

Perfecta suggests a roof-mount system when a height limitation occurs. This is very common on a ranch style home. If the height is less than 8’ from the deck surface to the mounting location, we would use a roof-mounted system. The system still allows for water and snow to pass under the unit safely. The brackets are anchored into the rafters of the roof and properly caulked to prevent leakage.

Perfecta retractable awnings are designed to be sunshades which provide UV protection. This product is not designed for rain protection; however, it can be used in drizzle or misting rains when strong winds are not present. In heavy rains, the awning should be retracted to avoid the “pooling” of water on the fabric which will cause irreversible stretching.

The general rule of thumb in real life applications is if you are comfortable sitting outdoors reading the paper or dining, then it probably is safe to operate your awning.

Yes. Retract the awning for the winter. Remove your hanging valance by simply loosening the two small screws from the end cap on one side of the front bar. Next, slide the valance out of the front bar removing both the valance and the black PVC tubing. Pull the PVC tubing out of the valance hem, fold up the valance, and replace the PVC tubing back in the front bar. Re-attach the end cap and tighten the screws.
